I was given a speeding ticket for going 78 in a 55 one night in Tyrone, GA. I don't dispute that I was speeding. However, I do not normally speed. I've only had one speeding ticket in the 10 years that I've been driving and it was about 6 years ago. This time, I had worked a 14 hour day and just wanted to get home--I was 5 minutes from my house. Not an excuse, just an explanation. The fine is set at $182, and I believe it will result in 3 points on my license.
Would talking to the solicitor be beneficial? Tyrone offers the opportunity to speak to the solicitor on the court date. Their website also says I can request to speak with the solicitor before the court date, but I'm not sure how likely that request is to be honored.
I work for a nonprofit--even $182 is a lot of money.
